  • When does the mpney start?

    Hi I know you have to normally finish 90 or better to get in the money $0.01.
    But when do you get the 3 extra points.

    'In the Money'
    This is a simple one ... finish 'in the money' will receive an additional +3 points.

    You may notice, especially in our Open Skill League tournaments, a difference between the announced payout in the "Tournament Info" and in the tournament lobby. Here is the explanation:

    The "Tournament Info" displays the theoretical payout of the prize pool as a percentage. When the actual prize amount for a place drops below $0.01 the prize is not credited to the player, but instead added to the prize of the tournament winner.

    The PokerSchool Skill League points are calculated with the theoretical prize distribution. For example, a player that is theoretically entitled to a prize below $0.01 will receive no actual money award for the tournament, but he will still receive the additional 3 Skill League points for finishing in the money.

      ITM is 1443 about I think, to make sure go to tournament info and look at places paid. because the bottom place is 0.00001% of 10 dollar he gets paid nothing but is still ITM

        In a full Open Skill League tournament of 10,000 players the 'bubbles' are at

        1441 - 1440
        235 - 234
        10 - 9

        The cash payouts start at 90 because this is where the payout formula reaches a whole $0.01, below this the amounts are too small to pay out.

        This information can be found in the Tournament Lobby / Tournament Info where it shows the Hand - for - Hand details. If the tournament has not filled you will see different figures here.

        Good luck
